Madison (WQOW) - Wisconsin's Republican leadership is applauding the decision by the Supreme Court to overturn Governor Evers' order and move forward with Tuesday's election.
Speaker Robin Voss and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said the safety and health of Wisconsin voters is their top priority so they are encouraging everyone to vote absentee.
“We agree with the state Supreme Court’s ruling that affirms the separation of powers spelled out in our Constitution. The state’s highest court has spoken: the governor can’t unilaterally move the date of the election," Vos and Fitzgerald said in a statement.
Governor Evers has yet to publically react to the Supreme Court's decision.
